16: Saab 9-5 Aero
Another great turbocharged car that died too soon was the Saab 9-5 Aero. If you’ve ever had the privilege of driving one, you’ll know what we’re talking about. The sheer design of the car was a marvel of Swedish ingenuity. Not to mention the fact that the car was a blast to drive with precision-built design and implementation. The final generation of the 9-5 was sort of a final hurrah for Saab.
The brand folded in the U.S. shortly after the recession and sadly the 9-5 didn’t get to experience a resurgence. But if you’re looking at inexpensive Swedish turbos, the 9-5 does the job. The sheer beauty of the car still stands to this day, and you can’t go wrong with its luxury appointments and sturdy design.
